Delicious & Easy Tuna Melt Recipe

I wasn't sure what to make for supper the other night - I needed something quick and suddenly I thought of Tuna. I decided to make Tuna Melts, along ith Campell's Soup. Doesn't everyone have a few cans of Campbell's Soup in their Pantry for those cold winter days? Granted, it's kind of spring now but soup goes so well with Tuna Melts!

Prep Time: 10 min

Cook Time: 10 min

Ingredients (makes 3 sandwiches):
*2 cans of flaked tuna
*cheese (Mozzarella, Swiss, Cheddar etc. - whatever you prefer) to cover area of bread
*finely chopped pickles (I usually use 3-4 medium sized ones)
*1/2-1 cup of cauliflower or sweet potatoe puree
*mayo or miracle whip (use as much or little as you like)
*6 slices of bread, 3 burger first buns (thin burger buns), mini burger first buns (for toddlers) or english muffins
*butter
*finely chopped onions - optional
*corn - optional

Mix all ingredients, put on bread, Burger First Bun or Bagel and layer with cheese. Spread butter on the other bread, bun or bagel and lay on top of cheese. Put in frying pan, butter-side down. Spread butter on other side of bread or bun. Fry each side for 5 min or until crispy.

Serve with Campbell's Chicken Noodle or any homemade soup. Olivia really enjoys this and generally requests it for the next couple of days. ;-) I like the hidden veggies in this simple sandwich.

  1. And a healthy tuna melt with califlower and sweet potatos in it! Very nice. I grew up with putting apple chunks in tuna fish sandwhiches. Have you ever done that? People think I'm weird, but it was normal for me.

  5. Tuna melts are the best! I just discovered how good they were about a year ago so I've been indulging to make up for the years I missed out on. Interesting addition with the puree!
